London will hold this year's European Transport Training Association (EuroTra Safety) and Innovation Award.
Nominations for this year’s European Transport Training Association (EuroTra) awards are now open. The fifth annual EuroTra Safety and Innovation Award will recognise those responsible for the best product or service aimed at improving road safety for the European road transport and logistics industry.
The EuroTra Safety and Innovation Award was created to recognise the efforts of individuals, organisations or companies who have made real efforts to improve road safety for the European road transport and logistics industry.
To support the importance of safety and to recognise achievements within the transport and logistics branch, Volvo Truck Corporation continues to sponsor the award, with Traffic and Product Safety Director Carl Johan Almqvist playing an active role as a judge on the award panel. For the third year in a row, FTA’s consultancy team has been commissioned by EuroTra to manage the Safety and Innovation Award.
EuroTra Safety and Innovation Award - the criteria
Once a year a selection committee consisting of representatives from Volvo Trucks and EuroTra selects the winning proposal that best meets all or most of the following criteria:
- presents a clear link with road safety and encourages a continuous process in the area of road safety;
- has a connection with the benefits of training and education;
- helps to solve environmental issues in the road transport industry;
- is innovative in its nature.
